Yet Another Coastal Storm for East Coast I-95 Travelers

The third coastal storm in 2 weeks is poised to bring gusty winds, minor coastal flooding, and areas of snow, heaviest in New England.

After the precipitation ends in the Mid-Atlantic region Monday night, attention turns to New England as the third nor’easter in two weeks is expected to bring significant snow from Connecticut to Maine, with some locations possibly getting in excess of a foot of snow. Parts of upstate New York are also likely to get heavy snow through the middle of the week. With the forecast track of the storm expected to be farther southeast than the last two events, the highest winds and waves should remain over the offshore waters.

Winter Storm Warnings have been issued for all of southern New England.

Snow will begin after midnight with heavier snow and near-blizzard conditions Tuesday morning lasting into the afternoon.

Potential for 1″ to 3″ of snow per hour, combined with high winds, could lead to near impossible travel conditions around Tuesday morning and even the Tuesday afternoon commute.
